Hsiu-Li Liao, Chen-Huei Chou, and Wan-Chun Chao

Abstract—Android open source mobile operating system has been used by major smartphone manufacturing companies. Its market share also exceeded 80% in the third quarter of 2013. Turnkey solution, offed by MediaTek, helps phone makes to build their phones from a phone template. This easy-to-make solution produces a large volume of Android-powered no-brand phones. It is crucial to ensure the compatibility and reliability of apps run on these phones. This study proposes test cases for performing system testing, compatibility testing, and automated stress testing of Android apps. Our experimental results show the validity of the test cases.

Index Terms—Android apps testing, no-brand smartphone, test automation, test case.
